The quiz evening was brilliant, a great turnout and great hosting by Darren Eadie, thank you to everyone for their support
Our press release
The fledgling Norwich City Fans Social Club enjoyed further success on Wednesday night as a fantastic turnout of 26 teams packed the Norfolk Lounge for their inaugural Quiz Night.
An eclectic mix of Football and General Knowledge questions delivered by Celebrity Quizmaster Darren Eadie led to an evening of laughter, entertainment, the odd bit of bewilderment and a keenly fought battle for supremacy.
In the end, the spoils stayed at Carrow Road as the team headed up by David McNally ended the night victorious with an impressive score of 84 out of a possible 100. They narrowly fended off the team entered by fans group Forces2Canaries and the innovatively named Gary Penrice, Rice, Baby who chased the Chief Exec hard as they finished joint second with 82 points.
A youthful Norwich City players team finished with a respectable 66 points and Kyle Lafferty and Ryan Bennett kindly helped with the prize raffle and winners presentation.
Once again NCFSC are indebted to all of you for your fantastic support and to Norwich City FC for their continued backing and assistance for our group. The event was a huge success and will have significantly added to the funds we have raised for the Community Sports Foundation, our nominated charity.
Next up is a forum with the management team of Alex Neil, Gary Holt and Frankie McAvoy on the 9 th December. This exciting opportunity to gain insight into what happens at Colney and beyond is open to all and is priced at £3 for adults and £1 for under 16’s, payable on the door. We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible there but if, in the meantime, you fancy testing your quiz credentials then the CSF are running their annual fundraising event “On The Buzzer City” on the 19 th November. See communitysportsfoundation.org.uk for further details.
Our star raffle prize was a pair of autographed trainers and an item of clothing worn by Russ Martin at a recent photo shoot and a signed shirt of Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe.
